This is an excellent 20545 American Flyer Train set. It includes the 10 cars that were included in the original set plus the additional bonus cars that we added to the set that I am selling as part of the set. This train has been in my family since the 1960s. It has always been stored in the original boxes and inside in the original outer box. It was set up almost every Christmas but was taken very good care of and was considered a highly prized family possession.

All cars are in great condition and in the original boxes except for Exploding Carrier*. The condition of the boxes vary from good to worn and torn but the condition of the train cars is very good. They were well taken care of, my Father made sure of that.

9 of the 18 car boxes have writing on the back of the box in ink.The last photo is the 5 boxes that are the worn and torn boxes. The rest of the boxes are in pretty good condition. The ones where you can see the end tabs are ones where the tab is torn and won't stay closed. There is some scotch tape on some of them and tape on the outer large box as can be seen in the photos. The is writing in ink on the top of the outer box.All of the boxes do have the box endflaps with the rubber stamp names on the ends. The Engine is in it's plain brown cardboard box and the tender is it's own printed box. All of the cars are in good condition. The cars have steps in tack as well as the little door hooks that lock the doors closed. And the engine has the number boards in tack which is hard to find. I have 3 pages of the original paperwork and a really nice brochure of the American Flyer cars. I am willing to pay the insurance to cover safe shipping.
